BILLINGSGATE POST - Not since the Yalta Conference of February 1945, where President Roosevelt and Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin fell in love at this romantic setting, has the world been made privy to such a tear-jerking rapprochement of mutually despised enemies.
In his short interview, Steve Kroft, the soft-ball tosser for CBS, threw more gopher-balls to Barack and Hillary than a batting practice pitcher. One wonders what was exchanged between the President and the Secretary of State to bring about this cuddling example of political opportunism.
At Yalta, in exchange for insuring the Soviet entry into the war with Japan, the ailing Roosevelt granted Stalin control of Poland and the postwar division of Germany. It is said that Roosevelt was oblivious to Stalin's objectives because of Stalin's excellent 'poker face.'
With both Hillary and Barack smiling and hee-hawing over suggestions that they might have had differences in the past, it was like watching the World Series of Poker with the final contestants wearing Joker masks while carefully reading each other's hand.
Kroft, to his credit, seemed to realize that he was on to something big when he finally got Secretary Clinton to tell the American people that, "We live not only in a dangerous, but incredibly complicated world right now."
Wow! With our foreign policy in Egypt, Syria and Libya adrift; not to mention our failures in Iraq and Afghanistan, small wonder both Barack and Hillary were so affable for not having been asked about these problems.
